We got one of those email yesterday that you can’t ever really go looking for, they just sort of come to you.
I don’t know how long you’ve been coming here but I did a little personal project w my Mom during her last chemo treatment. We were lucky enough to have it reach the Canadian Cancer Society’s attention and that lead to another project called Photosensitve: Cancer Connections. Its a ‘unique exhibition documenting the effects of cancer on the lives of Canadians throughout the country.’
Photographers from all over Canada have submitted some beautiful images and we have been asked to submit a few from our project as well. All of the images will be on display across the country at various locations including Halifax. The event will take place at Dalhousie University from September 10 to 27. While we don’t know all of the details yet, I can tell you that both Mom & I have been asked to speak during the opening ceremonies. Wow!
Believe it or not, I’m kind of at a loss for words. I don’t really talk about it much…remember?
If you have an image and you just don’t know how to send it in…I’ll help you. Drop me an email and I’ll make sure your story gets to the right place.
We submitted the 6 images below and I encourage you to participate if you can.
Liam…….. you have spoken through your photos. What a wonderful tribute yet again to your awesome mom. You have touched more lives than you know with your photos and slideshow. Keep up your incredible work!
I didn’t know about your mom….cancer runs through my family like the plague…wish I could give the details of which one but the truth is, we just have a weakness and it finds its way in wherever it sees an opportunity at that time….Small world after all huh? I’m very proud of you and your mom for doing this….it hits home to me as I have seen family members claimed by this awful illness. My compliments on your photography and I wish you and your mom tons of luck during your speach!!
This is really special and a wonderful tribute to the courage and commitment of both you and your Mom. Clearly you are living your dream…turning life into magic and vice versa (even in the less than ideal moments of life)….you must be so proud of what you have created. I am really happy for you and so pleased that you have been recognized for how you are able to capture the essence of EVERY moment and imprint that image on everyones heart. I hope your Mom continues to triumph and enjoy the glory of her wonderful son….
